On this version of the card, not one, but nine, figures stand holding wands in a rolling field. From older men with white beards to the fierce, red-haired warrior in the card's foreground, all stand ready to defend their land, their families and their ideals.
I like the fact that these disparate characters all stand ready to act together. It reminds me to ask, when feeling defensive or overwhelmed, who I can rely on for help and support. In some cases it may be different aspects of myself I need to marshal, but oftentimes there are kind friends and family willing to step in when needed.
What kind of support might I need today? What challenges do I have to push through? Two things spring to mind. Firstly, I have been feeling somewhat anxious of late. For that, knowing there are people I can talk to if I get panicky is a real blessing. Secondly, I need to push on to the end of my PowerPoint presentations for the Lenormand Workshop. That requires marshalling my enthusiasm, my camera, and some drawing software ;)
I am grateful for support in times of need.
